The Traxxas Bandit RTR Extreme Sports Buggy sets the new standard for R/C buggy performance. Offering fast speeds, intense action, and the most fun, the Bandit is sure to be one of your favorite R/C vehicles. Powered by the popular Titan 12-turn 550 modified motor, the Bandit delivers lightning-fast acceleration that takes the buggy to 35+mph. The combination of the new 2.4Ghz TQ radio and the XL-5 ESC gives great sensitivity and throttle response, putting you in the driver's seat and in complete control. Just pull the trigger and kick up some serious dirt, fly down the straight-aways at top speed, or take flight in the air by taking on some monstrous jumps. Whatever type of driving you like, the Bandit is sure to provide non-stop R/C racing excitement.

The engineering of the Traxxas Bandit XL-5 RTR Buggy incorporates the latest and best in R/C design and technology. It all starts with a lightweight ultra-rigid chassis. The lower center-of-gravity (CG) design allows for faster cornering and better control and handling on a variety of surfaces. Also working to keep the CG low is a lay-down mounting design for the steering servo. Delivering all of the Bandit's power to the wheels is a remarkable variable-ratio transmission that is incredibly efficient. Everything runs smoothly with sealed ball bearings and telescoping driveshafts.

But when the rubber hits the road, the rubber better be amazing! So, Traxxas has put a lot into a tire and wheel combination that can maximize traction and handling. The Bandit comes standard with new Alias high-performance 2.2" rear tires and Alias ribbed front tires for excellent directional control. This tire combo comes pre-glued to the sharp-looking 2.2" mirror-chrome Tracer five-spoke wheels. And just FYI, if you prefer asphalt to off-road terrain, you can easily transform your Bandit into a street machine by picking up a set of Traxxas Anaconda 2.2" street tires.

It seems that the list of features never ends. For beginners and younger drivers who aren't ready for the full speed of the Bandit, the XL-5 ESC can be programmed to reduce the power output to the motor by 50%. This gives beginners a way to learn to drive the buggy before really driving the buggy! This makes the Bandit a perfect choice for drivers of any age or skill level.
